Gun Blogger Rendezvous V Update

There's lots of interesting things going on, but a lot of it can't be announced until it's confirmed. That stuff will get announced as soon as I have confirmation. For now, However, I have the following announcements:

I talked to Quick Cal Eilrich, the head of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association, and we are planning to have another Cowboy Fast Draw Match for the Gun Blogger Rendezvous participants like the one that was so much fun last year. Some young whippersnapper blogger from California (CALIFORNIA???) kicked everyone's butts last year, so this year we're a'gunnin' for a rematch (cue Clint Eastwood spaghetti western sound track...). On the ladies side, the match between Millisecond Molly and KeeWee was worth the effort to get there all by itself. It was a "Best of Five" and it went back and forth, with Molly narrowly pulling off the victory. This year, however, some of the other cowgirls are lookin' to settle the score... (OK, turn off the sound track. Thanks)

I talked to Bill Brassard of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and NSSF intends to be involved as a sponsor again this year. Bill was able to attend in person last year, and schedule permitting, hopes to be there again this year for all the fun.

We had  an inquiry from Ireland regarding attending, and I've gotten emails from several other folks who are interested in attending for their first GBR this year. It looks like we're going to have a good mix of the regulars along with a number of new faces.

Plans are to have two range days, one on the longer distance target range, and a second day shooting handgun steel. The third shooting event will be the Cowboy Fast Draw activities.

Stay tuned, it's going to be a blast!

Woot! I loved shooting steel, but I have only one "cowboy" type gun and it's not a SAA - it's a 1909 Colt New Service, but it might be fun to try.
I'd rather shoot steel again since I already spend (all my) time at distance range(s) and there's almost nowhere around here to do that - except up in Richmond, and I aint going up there.

Good news! For the Cowboy Fast Draw the guns, holsters, ammo, and verbal abuse are all free......

Bea has a 22/45 now, and she will be working with it as soon as the Iowa weather improves. She really liked shooting steel!
